Subject: Mental arithmetic problem for teacher

Hi Math teachers,

I am about to get into the teaching field. I have a good ability to discuss, 
simplify and explain topics but can't do any mental arithmetic!!

I must use a paper and a pencil or a device of some sort even for simple

I never considered this as a problem since most of the courses in university 
did not require this mental capability, one almost always had a calculator 

Do you suggest I look for another career now?
